Bread News and Bring and Barter

posted in: loop news, loop projects, TLP | 0

Wow, it’s been a long time since I last wrote a blog, but we’ve got a few exciting announcements to make.

Firstly, after 3 years baking at home, Andy’s Bread is moving to central Llanidloes and is going to have a proper micro-bakery. The plan is to open around the end of August. There is going to be a launch event around that time – we’ll be back in touch nearer the time with more details!
A lot of you will already know Andy has been on the look out for people who might want to invest in Andy’s bread. This has been going amazingly well and he’s nearly reached his target. But he still has a little way to go, so if you have a few pounds jangling around your pocket  that you might like to invest (anything from a tenner up!), have a look on his website at the different options and please get in touch y the end of this week. The Bank of Andy’s Bread is offering a very favourable rate of bread-interest for those wise investors!
Secondly, BRING AND BARTER is coming back! I’ve just checked our archives and can’t believe it’s over two years since the first Bring and Barter event. We got so much positive feedback from that we were determined to make it a regular event. (remember – the one where we watched a great, but pretty scary documentary from Nicole Foss, then all had fun swapping jam).
Well it seems it has taken us a little longer than planned, but it will indeed be back. Hurrah! Initial plans are for it to be held on the 5th October, giving you plenty of time to make jams, chutneys, hats or any other hand-made/home grown things of beauty to exchange. More on that nearer the time, but for now get the date in your diary and get making!
Our final big piece of news is that Llani Kitchens is in the final stages of setting up now, we have 4 kitchens confirmed that will be available to hire and we’re expecting to launch mid-September. More on that soon.
All in all we have been busy bunnies! Which is probably why we might have appeared to have been so quiet of late, but it seems we are now ready to come out of hiding and are back with lots of exciting things going on!
